Roberto Lugo in studioKEYNOTE SPEAKER

On Monday, March 19, we welcome keynote speaker, Roberto Lugo, a Philadelphia artist, who describes himself as "...a potter, activist, culture-maker, rapper, poet, and educator."


Traveling exhibition

In addition to the two-day workshop, Artstream Nomadic Gallery and the Artstream Ceramic Library outreach project will be on-campus.

Parked on the quad, the Artstream Nomadic Gallery, a traveling exhibition housed in a restored 1967 Airstream trailer, the gallery features the artwork of 26 nationally recognized and emerging studio potters and includes a wide-range of styles, aesthetics and techniques found in contemporary ceramics.

Borrow hand-made cups

An extension of the Artstream Nomadic Gallery, the Artstream Ceramic Library is a social outreach project. The project’s mission is to connect contemporary functional ceramics with a variety of people. The Ceramic Library loans out unique handmade ceramic cups created by 13 well-known artists. Borrowers agree to use the cups in some type of artistic manner—music, video, visual art—and then to photographs of the cups in use and share them with the Ceramic Library. Check out the project in Brendlinger Library, College Hall, during the month of March 2018.

Event livestream

If you cannot attend in person, the workshop will be livestreamed both nationally and internationally.
